With only a week until we go home (albeit only for a month) we decided to finish with a highlight and head up to the Iguazu Falls for the weekend.
Our flight was cancelled so the airline put us up in a hotel and fed us well. We didn´t miss out on anything though and had plenty of time to explore the 3 Frontiers area where you can see both Brazil and Paraguay from the safety of Argentina.
The falls themselves were breathtaking. The camera really can´t do them justice and they are our "must see" of Argentina so far. We did two trips. On day one we went to Brazil and you got an idea of just what a big area these falls were covering. The next day we were taken around the Argentine of the National Park. We finished off getting very wet with a trip on the river which took us underneath one of the falls! Good job we had a change of clothes with us.

Niagara eat your heart out
Stunning, the only watçy to describe it.
A weekend at the seaside and our first glimpse of the ocean in months! We were lucky with the sunny weather but the wind kept us off the beach most of the time.
We were there for a public holiday to commemorate 30 years since trhe military juntas took control of the country. There were parades and demonstrations all over the place.
Near the docks there is a sealion colony. They were noisy and smelly but great to see.
The beautiful seafront. We had dinner on the pier.
The fresh bream was superb.
Bright orange trawlers.
Colourful protest band at the rally.
